Our Crap Neighbor

First, a new video by Gareth Gates called “Changes”.  I have always loved Gareth, but this song is one of the prettiest I have ever heard.  I am definately going to get this CD.  Good Job Gareth!

Now, as some of y0u know, I have this crap neighbor.

A few months ago, he got it into his head that he wanted to remove a tree.  The tree was straddling both our properties.  I have no idea why he had this bee in his bonnet, but he did.

So, he came to us and told us he wanted to remove the tree, and our portion of the bill would be $200.00.  So, we agreed.  Fine.

And he removed the tree.

Afterwords, he came to us and said that by the way, we now owe him $700.00.

We basically told him that for $700.00 we would have told him to leave the damn tree where it was.   We agreed to pay him $200.00 and that is what he is getting.  Are we wrong?

Anyway.  Now he is whining.   Egads.    I swear, never get into these things with a neighbor!

    What a putz he is. Let him whine, you didn’t agree to pay that much.
    Of course you know he’s gonna swear that most of the tree was actually on YOUR side, or that the problem with taking it down was on YOUR side, or some such crap.
    Don’t let him bother you.

    See you on The People’s Court, Hon! (Not that I watch such programs…) 😉
